OK, guys, I got some stats from this series.

WSH forwards blocked shots:

Laich 11
Ovechkin 9
Backstrom, Hendricks, Brouwer - all 8

I think OV's got the edge on Backstrom now in MVP ratings

Have more stats btw
Will post later

Don't forget Washington's biggest cheerleader rankings... Ovechkin is currently leading the pack.

How Backstrom is playing so few minutes is a question for me. I guess he can play more.


Backstrom is averaging 21:48 this post-season. 5th most on the team and 1st among forwards.

There were games with very low totals for him.

Average is with OTs. That's why he got 20+.

Head to head TOI charts for even strength

WSH away games (MSG)



WSH home games (Verizon)



Are these pics clear enough to understand? Should I explain anything?

The fact that he's first among the team's forwards is not debatable and has nothing to do with OT.

MAY 9 '12 NYR @ WSH 18:54
MAY 7 '12 WSH @ NYR 20:25
MAY 5 '12 NYR @ WSH 17:47
MAY 2 '12 NYR @ WSH 34:14 (is it like 18 mins per 60?)
APR 30 '12 WSH @ NYR 16:18
APR 28 '12 WSH @ NYR 19:36

I just think Backstrom could and should play more.


PS: Brad Richards:

MAY 9 '12 NYR @ WSH 22:33
MAY 7 '12 WSH @ NYR 22:58
MAY 5 '12 NYR @ WSH 23:19

Yeah, I mean, I agree, but the fact that he's first among forwards with the way Hunter manages ice time is what it is.

Breaking news! Semin is stealing the MVP!!!

Ov's got the best percentage of the offensive zone starts (from Caps players): 35-22 (off-def starts).

While being positioned to produce offense there were 76 shots for Caps and 120 shots against while OV was on the ice.

Backstrom and Semin is the only ones with positive difference. While their offensive zone starts are much less common.

Backstrom: 92 SF, 87 SA. Offensive-defensive starts = 29-29.
Semin: 84 SF, 70 SA. 12 off zone starts and 26 def zone starts.

23 hours away from sweating profusely and drinking to help minimize the sweating.

I wonder if there is a story in the stats in our bottom 6... like I suspect our bottom 6 leads other teams in TOI in regulation. No Raik, dont bother! Save it up for tomorrow.

Wow, damn. What upsets me most about Ovi is he sucks at board battles.. and at 220 lbs, strong as a bull, there is no reason for it. What I don't understand is, being a competitive guy, how is he ok with it? It's like he has 100% hero mentality -- score a big goal, make a big hit, nowadays make a big block.. but working hard time after time on digging out a puck or closing the gap on a point man is like off limits to what he feels he should be doing. He's evolving to be a Brett Hull that hits hard, which is not bad (esp. if you ignore the salary).. but it's so tantalizing -- how good of a player he could really be..
